Crochet This Shamrock In Different Thread & Yarn Sizes To Create Different Projects!

Have you ever tried crocheting a single pattern in multiple sizes of threads or yarns with a correspondingly sized crochet hook? Here's a chance to try just that! You can make something as tiny as a delicate crocheted pendant all the way up to a worsted weight yarn potholder all out of just one pattern.

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and it's time to think about what you will crochet! Here is a pattern for a simple shamrock I designed in a square motif. I used it to make a few different objects by using different weights of thread and/or yarn.

With this pattern, you can explore working with three different threads and yarns to complete three entirely different projects! Here I've started with a delicate shamrock motif pendant done in size 80 thread and a size 0.75mm hook, done all in one color.

If you've been wanting to try to work with tiny thread, here's a great opportunity. You could start with the potholder in yarn, work down to the coaster in perle cotton, then graduate to the itty-bitty size 80 thread pendant. Hey - it could be fun! I didn't have any trouble finding my size 80 thread, it was sold right next to the tatting supplies.

If you just aren't in the mood to play with the tiny stuff, you could make your pendant in size 30, 20 or 10 crochet thread with a corresponding sized hook. It will just be a bit larger.

Next, you could complete the same pattern in size 8 variegated Perle cotton for a pretty shamrock coaster.

Finally, you can use worsted weight cotton yarn and a size H hook to complete a shamrock potholder for your kitchen!

I was just thinking that the motifs done in a medium weight thread would make a pretty placemat with the motifs just slip stitched together. You might try that too!

NOTE: In the photo shown here, I have added a 10mm Peridot bead to the pendant

Fasten off, weave in ends. Secure buried end with a drop of glue if desired.

I think this would also be pretty if you used smaller 4-6mm Swarovski crystals to embellish each petal of the clover plus the center, perhaps using a slightly larger crystal for the center bead.
